3.3 – Lana I Ka Moana – (Adrift) – Page 1

Guest recapper this week is our very own Infant – @GLBali. Thus, the recap is rated PG13 (just kidding!) Thanks, Gracie for your awesome take on this episode. All amazing gifs by the talented @neropatti.  Note: I’ve posted as separate pages to allow you to comment on each page.

40 miles (64 kilometres for those of us using the metric system) South of O’ahu Steve has taken his BFFITWWW, Danny fishing. Steve (as proof the writers follow us on twitter and on our blogs) is rocking his straw hat. Score one for the Sun Smart people of the world. He has, however, failed the next part of the course, as shirts for sun protection customarily come with sleeves. But! He is wearing his UDT (Underwater Demolition Team – McNerd moment 7894)/SEAL shirt and the guns are on display, so I assume there is sunscreen action going on there and we are able to move on.

The guns, the tatts, the dorky hat. What more can we ask for?? Oh, yeah. Pantslessness.

Danny does not own a t-shirt. He wore the one t-shirt he owns (that black one, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I am talking about) when he had to rescue his BFFITWWW from North Korea. Because he doesn’t want to make Steve emo, he has kindly disposed of it, but now has no t-shirts to wear. This is a clear hint that Steve should be buying Danny a t-shirt for his birthday. Or Christmas. Danny for what we can only assume, will not be the last time, comments on Steve’s need to drive his (brand spanking new, yet almost identically the same) Camaro. Steve informs Danny that they are on a mission to catch his first tuna fish and it becomes clear the two are not on the same wavelength when it comes to ideal fishing trips. These two are having a boatgument. It is something about moving vehicles that lulls these two into arguments, as opposed to lulling them to sleep (oh I think that might only be babies).

Danny’s only t-shirt. Too many emo memories for Steve.

Danny enquires if Steve has gotten any word on his mother, which he hasn’t. It seems Cath is still looking into Momma McG for Steve as she is still on that fantastic amount of leave the US Navy gives to people. Danny points out that Steve is having his girlfriend check up on his mom. Steve reminds Danny that Cath is NOT his girlfriend (and rightly so, this guy has major issues, is the King of Emos, I should know I live in Emo Land) and that she is using her Naval Intelligence contacts to get more information on Steve’s mother. The navy, obviously, is experiencing some quiet time on the international scene, allowing Lieutenant Too Clueless To Realise He Won’t Score With Cath, to use government resources to check up on a former CIA operative. Danny and Steve agree that spies, especially women spies, KNOW things, and really Steve’s mission isn’t going to end well. McCath fans all over the world are sitting on the edge of their seats when Danny presses Steve to define his and Cath’s relationship querying, “what is it with Navy SEALs? They’re not allowed to have girlfriends?” Steve throws some words together, they do make a sentence, but clearly all those years of Navy school didn’t cover how to answer questions about your maybe/maybe not girlfriend. Thus we can conclude that the easiest way to outsmart a SEAL, or at the very least, how to make him uncomfortable is to start talking about his girlfriend. Steve admits he hasn’t told Mary about their mother’s return when the moment is stopped from being too awkward because Danny’s line has finally caught a bite. Danny tells Steve to stop “backseat fishing” and Steve’s reaction to his BFFITWWW catching his first fish is absolutely priceless.

So you’ve got your girlfriend checking up on Mom?

She’s not my girlfriend, she’s my uhhh, ummmm….oh look! You caught something!

It’s a TUNEY fish!

Real men don’t smile.

  1. 1.Three McNerd topics in the first paragraph! Infant you are a legend.

    2. I miss the black t-shirt. Gone but not forgotten.

    3. “Thus we can conclude that the easiest way to outsmart a SEAL, or at the very least, how to make him uncomfortable is to start talking about his girlfriend.” <— SEAL Kryptonite. Shhh, don't tell Wo Fat. 😉

    1. Epiosode 3.12 begins with Wo Fat sneaking into the McGarrett residence with a copy of “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” leaving it conspiciously on the coffee table & then shooting McG in the face when the sight of it it stuns him into a waking coma.

      1. LOL. I hope someone sneaks it onto McG’s Kindle.

      2. BWAHAHAHAHA!!

        Or kick his ass. I’m thinking Wo Fat doesn’t have any gun skillz which is why he didn’t even attempt to shoot Momma McG when given the chance and really, have we ever seen him use a gun? Not HIS guns, but a gun?

          Because she is WoFat’s Momma too. *cries real emo tears*

          1. Hush, you, don’t even mention THAT!

              LOL are you allowed to hush the person who created the recap you’re commenting on???

              1. Special circumstances. As in Plot Development that Shall not be Named.

      3. Or for instant heart failure: What To Expect When You’re Expecting on Cath’s side of the bed.

        1. WTEWYE was my bible when I was pregnant . Every question I ever had was answered in that book. I think I’ve still got it. #redundantnow

          I bet Malia has a copy in the bedroom.

      It’s not a recap by me if I don’t McNerd right?

    3. 3. . “Thus we can conclude that the easiest way to outsmart a SEAL, or at the very least, how to make him uncomfortable is to start talking about his girlfriend.” <— SEAL Kryptonite. Shhh, don't tell Wo Fat.

      Dead set snorted when I read that line. You're a legend. I bow to thee.

    Danny has a Kamekono shave ice t-shirt too (season 1, episode 1) – but it’s too big for him!

  3. First of all Gracie – thanks heaps for doing this recap. It’s always nice to get someone elses’s perspective and writing style so things don’t become too boring and predictable.

    Secondly, fantastic job!

      Thanks Westy. 🙂 And thanks to you for uploading it for me.

  4. Yay Infant!! Well done!!
    My question why Chin Uncle not give the boat a Hawaiian name?

    1. Maybe he bought it from someone. There is an old superstition that renaming a boat brings bad luck.

      Clearly, borrowing someone’s boat also brings bad luck.

      1. It would still be McG’s fault though, for wanting to go out on the boat in the first place. Or for not knowing about the bad luck. Somehow, it’s going to be McG’s fault.

        1. Alicia: it will be McG’s fault for not knowing about the bad luck! Lol! <<— this!! Haha!

      Thanks mate. Yeah not sure about that one. I was surprised when I found it on google so easily. I didn’t think I’d get a translation that quick.

    “Danny and Steve agree that spies, especially women spies, KNOW things, and really Steve’s mission isn’t going to end well.”
    Between Mom and Cath, Steve doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting out of this one unscathed.

    1. In the end, I don’t think he needs to worry about Cath or his mom. He needs to be afraid of Mary. Everyone needs to be afraid of Mary. I am.

  6. Subscribing! Move on….

  7. Also…EMO Steve FTW!!!

  8. Gotta say that Happy McG was a joy to watch. Dorky fishing hat and all.

  9. “Score one for the Sun Smart people of the world. He has, however, failed the next part of the course, as shirts for sun protection customarily come with sleeves. ” – so in other words, Grace would have McG out in a full burka. (not loving this part of recap 😉 lol)

    He must have some good protection on because his tatts are more pale than normal. Not nearly as brilliant a blue.

    Emo Land – I love the King and Queen of Emoland 🙂

      “Grace would have McG out in a full burka. ‘
      Well let’s not get carried away now. 😉

      In all seriousness considering how much time they spend in the sun they better frigging have sunscreen on.

      Are you coming to visit emo land? 😉

  11. Hi Mari! Hope you enjoyed the recap and welcome! It’s been pretty quiet around here for the last couple of months, but once S4 begins, it’ll be all systems go again. Hope you stick around 🙂
